The Murder Professor is a 100 page black & white graphic novel collecting the first story arc of the Division & Rush webcomic, originally commissioned by the Chicago Tribune Media Group.
The Murder Professor is a crime story with pitch black humor that explores the intersection of the celebrity caused by the 24/7 news cycle and lack of closure when evidence is circumstantial and nothing can be known beyond a reasonable doubt.
“When ex-cop Stu Peterman is acquitted of murdering his wives, he does what anyone in his situation would do: he starts giving seminars on “How Murderers Get Caught.” As spouses start dropping like flies, Detectives Division and Rush must stare down an angry mayor, a mutinous football team, a reality TV star, an improbable army of Stu Peterman groupies and an investigative reporter with a little too much drive as they try to make the city safe for bickering couples.”
And unlike _some_ comic book publishers, we’re holding the line at $2.99 for the digital edition.
